One of the very best outings you can take with your child is to the public library. Libraries are the "building blocks of our community." They are a place to gather, to share, to read, to dream. Emmy and I venture to our neighborhood library every Friday. Emmy is always excited to see our favorite librarian, Paula, and tell her all the latest news.
With her fifth birthday, Emmy was able to get a library card of her very own. So exciting!!!!
A wonderful resource to locate a library in your area is publiclibraries.com. Just click on your state to find not only the public libraries listed by city, but also the state, presidential, national, college and law libraries.

"Here is where people,
One frequently finds,
Lower their voices
And raise their minds."
~ Richard Armour, "Library"
